    Page editing

    I hope I'm in the correct section.  I have a couple of questions.

     

    Is there a way to edit the size of images?

    How can I move something to where I want on the page.  (example: Instead of a 'button' just below an image, how can I put it where I want it on the page)

    It depends. If you're using the GoDaddy Website builder, then you're a bit locked in on the options they give you as they are standardized templates designed for ease of use and not customization.

     

    If that's something you need, I would suggest a CMS (content management system) like WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, etc.

    Re: Page editing

    Hi MrVapor

    Bit of a Noob to GoDaddy here, but firstly thanks for the 1001 answers to various questions that I've seen as I've browsed the forums.

    It feels and sounds like the Website Builder is an easy way to get content into place, but editing that content is either impossible or needs you to be poking around by adding HTML manually. This comment here, about something as simple as changing the size of an image, seems like a perfect example. It feels like it should be straightforward but it clearly isn't.

    Is Wordpress capable of taking the GoDaddy built pages and working with them, or has the builder created a mass of unwieldy HTML that means starting from scratch is the better option? I'm now in a position where what I have built is not what I really want for my product but I'm seemingly unable to make the changes I need. If starting again from scratch is the next step then the sooner I know (and can cost it) the better.

    Hi @Sionel,

     

    The Websites+Marketing plan (W+M) is proprietary software (like most companies' customer builders) and does not translate over to a WordPress application. For WordPress you can either purchase a cPanel plan and install the WordPress application, or you can go with the Managed WordPress hosting available. 

     

    To rebuild the website, you can keep the W+M plan online to emulate, or simply copy/paste text, while you build your WordPress website on a subdomain of the one used for the W+M plan. When you're ready to switch over, you can rename the WP plan and re-point the DNS.
